qdiff: Copy blocks from one side to another

Bug #148026 reported by Nicholas Allen on 2007-10-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

In the diff window it would be very handy to be able to undo diffs by copying them from one side to another. In many diff programs this is done by showing an arrow in the margin, pointing from one side to the other, that can be clicked.

I think it's more text merge ability than diff.
It make sense only to revert some changes in right side (actual state of file) and only when we see diff for file in working tree, not for history (e.g. diff -r-3..-1). Because in the last case we actually can't change anything in branch history :-)

I saw such feature on the Meld screenshots. Looks nice, but I don't know how hard to implement this actually.
